The bearded (except Frank Beard, of course) ones play for George W. Bush...

ZZ TOP are to play an hour-long show at one of the first events in US President-elect GEORGE W. BUSH’s four-day inaugural celebrations in WASHINGTON DC.

According to [url=]www.guitar.com, the group will perform at a private party for 1,000 people billed as the ‘Best Little Ball In DC’, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, where a number of other more formal events are scheduled to take place to mark his inauguration.

Bush is reportedly a fan of the band, who have received a string of accolades over the years from their home state of Texas, including Bush declaring May 15, 1997 ZZ Top Day when he was Governor.
